My 73rd Show
Returning to Cal Expo, expectations were high. The last set of shows here were possibly the best that I’d ever seen (& maybe ever did see). The boys didn’t disappoint. Jerry came to play. You can hear how much fun he was having. His song choices were some of my favorites, and the second set opens with 3 Jerry songs in a row. Take that! There’s lots of great jamming, with extended intros (Eyes, Wheel), outros (Foolish, Black Peter), and everyone is just ON. Bobby is playing really well, Brent continues to take great solos and there’s even a nifty jam in Easy To Live You. Phil, Mickey and Billy are right in tune with everything, urging the whole train forward. If Jer didn’t forget the Crazy Cat verse in China Cat, that might’ve made it onto Without A Net. All-in-all, shows like this convinced me never to miss a Cal Expo show.
